A Disappointing Continuation
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
Excellent and certainly provocative... If nothing else, the film is a real conversation starter.
Great example of an old-fashioned, pure-at-heart escapist event movie that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not and has boat loads of fun being its own ludicrous self.
This movie is not groundbreaking, but in a time of repetitious stories/plots, this movie is a little refreshing. Don't get me wrong, it still relies heavily on jump scares and other predictable tropes. However, I found the humor and occasional well acted scenes are what kept me interested. Plus, there is some really nice camera work that makes it seem like the team that made this movie actually cared. It's a great movie for a movie night with a group of friends or alone. I can't even tell you how many times I've rewatched this movie. It's not trying to win any awards, just entertain you. So give it a try and have fun with it!
Yes! This is one of the best horror movies that will scare you and make you jump! I don't easily get scared of horror movies because I have watched too many of them and know exactly what's gonna happen. This movie has something a lot of horror movies doesn't have, like, a well thought storyline, great actors, jump scares, I-can't-watch-this-moments and everything else a horror movie should have. So go make som popcorn and go grab a friend (because you don't want to watch this alone) and play the movie!
As a horror movie, it had some scares, but as a story, it wasn't that surprising. Though it is based on a true story and I love haunted house movies, these kinds of films have lost their surprise. It seemed like a cross between Insidious (directed by James Wan also) and Sinister. Insidious also dealt with demonic possession (in fact, one old lady that was also a ghost in Conjuring looked like the same one in Insidious) and Sinister, which also deals with demonic possession, features the characters moving into a house that was previously haunted already and those that enter are in danger. So basically, there weren't many surprises, but I wish we knew more about the ghosts. We don't know the names of these demons or where they came from (other than Hell) and some of the ghosts appear in one scene and have nothing to do with the movie. As a horror fan, it does have scares, but I think they should have a new approach to the haunted house genre. I still say The Others was the best of the haunted house movies (though I haven't seen Amityville Horror). Overall, I guess if you haven't seen the two horror movies I've mentioned, it would be scarier. So I'm on the fence with this one.
Although this was a great horror movie, it has good storyline which you'll never confuse even at first watch.
Most of characters are good polished and you never surprise by their acts which make this movie a classic one in horror genre.
Depiction of paranormal characters is believable and makes you curious to watch them accurately and never overused them. Always try to make frightening situations versus use paranormal characters.
One of the best factors which distinguish this movie in horror genre is psychological descriptive reasons for every paranormal activities that occurred in whole movie and you always comprehend about circumstances.
Some foly effects are exaggerated and made some scenes artificial.
I believe this movie can be a classic exemplary in super-natural horror genre.
